Youth Crisis Centers

Youth Crisis Centers (YCC) are safe places for youth, ages 12-17, to go to by choice if they are having emotional distress, psychiatric symptoms, substance use challenges, or other life stressors. Each YCC is expanding to include youth ages 5-17; call your local YCC for details.

  • YCCs are open 24/7/365
  • Walk-ins are welcome
  • Youth may stay for up to 23 hours and 59 minutes
    • In that time, youth may receive crisis stabilization services, medical screening, assessment support, and referrals for added community-based services
  • Parents and caregivers may also receive education and support
  • School Resource Officers or Police Officers may transport youth from schools to the centers
  • A parent or guardian must be available upon a youth's admission
  • Services for youth are 100% voluntary and free of charge
